Last week the Princess went back to school. Can I get a Woohoo! LOL
For the first day of school I told her she could pick out anything she wanted for dinner. This would be a special dinner. So, after school I took her grocery shopping. She decided on steak, macaroni and cheese and slice bell peppers with dip. Thank goodness we went pass the produce section of the store first because she immediately asked for a fresh fruit salad for dessert. Lucky for me we didn’t go down the candy aisle!
When she was at school, I set the table for her special dinner. Now, I want to stress this is not a tablescape. Just a table for our dinner.
I started with the multi-color bamboo-ish placemats from CTS. I added the DT yellow and orange dinner plates.
On top of the dinner plates I used a set of William-Sonoma dessert plates.
And then topped them with the yellow and orange DT matching bowls.
I had to use these pretty beaded bird napkin rings because they are the princess’s favorite set of napkin rings I own. She just thinks they are too cute!
Since we were having fresh bell peppers for dinner, I decided they would make a pretty and simple centerpiece.
I am going to be so sad when the farmer’s market season is over!
I have to say, it has been so nice to get back to a dinner time routine. It seems like summer just throws us off when it comes to simple things like family dinner time. This is the time we get to hear all about each others day and enjoy each other’s company.
Thank you for stopping by and have a fun day!
